Restructuring & Insolvency Proceedings

A debt crisis in a company gives rise to both risk and opportunities. DZP offers its clients assistance with avoiding the former and making use of the latter.

We look at a company’s problems in a multifaceted way, as the causes of insolvency lie in different areas of the company's operations. For this reason, reacting properly to difficulties and effectively restructuring the business may require the involvement of specialists in many fields.

Advice on projects with insolvency elements is provided by a dedicated group of specialists representing various DZP Practices. Each has in-depth expertise and extensive experience in handling matters falling within their purview and related to company insolvency. Each project is coordinated by a licensed restructuring adviser who heads a team of experts specialising in restructuring and bankruptcy proceedings.

This means that the team advising the client is always tailor-made and available at one address. With this approach, we are able to help businesses manage their problems by devising solutions that specifically suit the issues they are facing. We pay attention to the details and clearly identify risks that are acceptable and those that may jeopardise the client's aim.
